We have over 40 games in total to give away!
So how do you win? Easy as pie. Simply donate $5 or more at our donation page before the 12th of September. That’s it, nothing could be simpler. Major Prize winners will be announced a day after the event has finished giving people a chance to enter if they are unavailable on the day. Prizes will also be given out during the Marathon for people watching the stream and taking part so make sure you join us on the day if you can. Please note that the physical prizes can only be won by Australia residents, however all the prizes that are codes can be won by our international readers.
A massive thanks to Devolver Digital, QV Software, Ubisoft Australia and Bandai Namco for the prize donations. Your support will make this a great event.
The event will kick off at 10am AEST on the 1oth of September. Viewers will be able to watch via the Player 2 Website as well as at out Twitch channel. We have picked a range of games that hopefully encourage viewer interaction as well as the ability to give as many Player 2 writers the ability to join in the fun. We will also be running a second stream of local tournaments we will be holding during the event. These tournaments will be local only and are a fun way to involve friends, family and supporters of Player 2. The second stream will also capture the party atmosphere we are hoping to create with multiple gaming stations setup at our streaming location. The stations include an Arcade Cabinet, Mario Kart and Smash Brothers on a projected screen and a Rockband/Guitar Hero setup.
So without further ado check out our schedule for the big event.

Editor of Player 2, Matt spends his time yelling at strangers as they walk past, imploring them to visit Player 2. Sadly this tactic hasn’t yielded any significant results but he keeps on trying regardless.
